Cloud Computing is one of the most recognized computing paradigms in our time, where Information Technology (IT) resources and services are supplied on-demand over the Internet. Nowadays, almost everyone is using the cloud whether it is an email platform, an online storage or a complicated online datacenter for business high-scale deployments. Following the recent statistics and analytics, cloud computing business market is growing each year in term of demand and revenue. This business growth is pushing cloud providers to expand their infrastructures in order to manage the users’ increasing level of requests. In the same context, this paper presents the importance of task scheduling algorithms in the optimization of the cloud providers’ infrastructures exploitation, thus a significant cost reduction in term of new hardware investments and maintenance.
